Howzat signs Suresh Raina as brand ambassador
Howzat, Junglee Games' top fantasy sports platform, has engaged former Indian international cricketer Suresh Raina as a brand ambassador to help promote the company's brand among the country's sports fans.
Raina is one of the best middle-order batsmen to have ever represented India. He also plays for the IPL's Chennai Super Kings and is followed by millions on social media.
The combination between the dependable middle-order batsman and Howzat is certain to attract a large number of cricket fans to the platform and further strengthen Howzat's position as India's most lucrative fantasy sports app. Raina becomes the newest Indian celebrity endorsement and ambassador for Howzat, which already counts Yuvraj Singh and Irfan Pathan as brand ambassadors.
Raina expressed his enthusiasm for the association by stating, "Howzat reminds me of the days when, as a young lad in Muradnagar, I earned incentives for winning local competitions with my team, which made playing cricket more thrilling and joyful." It's an incredible tool that allows me to connect with cricket lovers from all over India. Creating teams on Howzat and putting cricket enthusiasts from all over the country through their paces on a daily basis has become an obsession of mine recently. I adore the app – it's my all-time favourite in the fantasy genre. I say this first and foremost as a user, and now as a proud brand ambassador.”
Bharat Bhatia, VP of Marketing at Junglee Games, commented on the significant partnership: "We're ecstatic that Suresh Raina has agreed to join Howzat as a brand ambassador. He has contributed enormously to Indian cricket throughout the years and is adored throughout the country for it. His support of Howzat will serve as a catalyst for the expansion of our brand. Howzat is on a mission to provide sports fans around the country with the most gratifying fantasy sports experience possible. We're excited to announce that cricket fans can now compete against the legendary cricketer in fantasy cricket competitions on Howzat and win cash rewards for defeating his teams.”
Suresh Raina is widely regarded as one of the game's greatest finishers. Since his first selection for the Indian team in 2006, he has become a household name in the country. Among Raina's numerous accomplishments is his key role in India's historic 2011 World Cup victory.
He is the first Indian batsman to achieve a century in each of the three formats of international cricket and the first player to reach 5,000 runs in the Indian Premier League. He is also a world-class fielder, having amassed the most catches (104) in the IPL. In August 2020, Raina announced his retirement from international cricket.
